This database may be searched by a variety of fields and is updated once a week. Weekly File Description for the CDRH Releasable (Approved) PMAs
Premarket Approval (PMA) Summary Review Memos for 180-Day Design Changes A 180-day supplement is a request for a significant change in components, materials, design, specification, software, color additive, and labeling to an approved premarket application or premarket report. As a pilot program under the CDRH Transparency Initiative, FDA has begun releasing some summary review memos for 180-day PMA supplements relating to design changes. Weekly More about Premarket Approval (PMA) Summary Review Memos for 180-Day Design Changes
Premarket Notifications (510(k)s) Medical device manufacturers are required to submit a premarket notification or 510(k) if they intend to introduce a device into commercial distribution for the first time or reintroduce a device that will be significantly changed or modified to the extent that its safety or effectiveness could be affected. This database of releasable 510(k)s can be searched by 510(k) number, applicant, device name or FDA product code.  Summaries of safety and effectiveness information is available via the web interface for more recent records. The database is updated once a week. Weekly

Recalls of Medical Devices

This database contains Medical Device Recalls classified since November 1, 2002. Beginning January 3, 2017, the database may also include correction or removal actions initiated by a firm prior to review by the FDA. The status of the action is updated if the FDA identifies a violation and classifies the action as a recall and again when the recall is terminated.   FDA recall classification may occur after the firm recalling the medical device product conducts and communicates with its customers about the recall and provides contact information for customers with questions.  Therefore, the recall information posting date (“create date”) indicates the date FDA classified the recall, it does not necessarily mean that the recall is new.  CBER recall information is available here.

Frequently as items become available More About Recalls
Recognized Consensus Standards This database consists of those national and international standards recognized by FDA which manufacturers can declare conformity to and is part of the information the Center can use to make an appropriate decision regarding the clearance or approval of a submission. Information submitted on conformance with such standards will have a direct bearing on safety and effectiveness determinations made during the review of IDEs, HDEs, PMAs, and PDPs.  Conformance with recognized consensus standards in and of itself, however, may not always be a sufficient basis for regulatory decisions. Quarterly  
Registration & Listing This searchable database contains establishments (engaged in the manufacture, preparation, propagation, compounding, assembly, or processing of medical devices intended for human use and commercial distribution) and listings of medical devices in commercial distribution by both domestic and foreign manufacturers. Generally, owners or operators of establishments that are involved in the production and distribution of medical devices intended for use in the U.S. are required to register annually with the FDA. Generally, establishments that are required to register with the FDA are also required to list the devices that are made there and the activities that are performed on those devices. If a device requires a premarket submission before being marketed in the U.S., then the owner/operator should also provide the FDA premarket submission number (510(k), De Novo, PMA, PDP, HDE). Note: This database is updated weekly. Weekly More About Registration and Listing
